Viggo Mortensen & Mahershala Ali Hit The Road In First GREEN BOOK Trailer

Viggo Mortensen Mahershala Ali GREEN BOOK
First look at director Peter Farrelly's upcoming drama.







The director of comedies like Dumb & Dumber and There's Soemthing About Mary, Peter Farrelly wouldn't be the first name you might attach to a civil rights era drama, but Farrelly steps outside his comic comfort zone to direct Green Book.

The film stars Viggo Mortensen as an Italian-American bouncer hired to drive an African-American pianist (Mahershala Ali) on a potentially dangerous tour of America's racially divided South in 1962. Linda Cardellini co-stars.

Green Book is in UK/ROI cinemas February 2019.


The official synopsis reads:

When Tony Lip (Mortensen), a bouncer from an Italian-American neighborhood in the Bronx, is hired to drive Dr. Don Shirley (Ali), a world-class Black pianist, on a concert tour from Manhattan to the Deep South, they must rely on “The Green Book” to guide them to the few establishments that were then safe for African-Americans.  Confronted with racism, danger—as well as unexpected humanity and humor—they are forced to set aside differences to survive and thrive on the journey of a lifetime.
